Verse 1
Hail to the Lord's Anointed,
Great David's greater Son!
Hail, in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,
To set the captive free;
To take away transgression,
And rule in equity

Verse 2
Arabs ? the nomadic race
Shall bow themselves to Him;
Strangers from Ethiopia
Shall seek His glory bright;
Ships on the high seas shall meet,
All offering their worship,
Bringing treasures of the seas
To worship before Him

Verse 3
Kings shall fall down before Him,
And gold and incense bring;
All nations shall adore Him,
His praise all people sing;
With offerings of devotion,
Ships from the aisles shall meet
To pour the wealth of ocean
In tribute at His feet

Verse 4
To Him shall prayer unceasing,
And daily vows ascend;
His kingdom without end:
The mountain dews shall nourish
A seed in weakness sown,
Whose fruit shall spread, and flourish,
And shake like Lebanon
